Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author James Swallow begins his espionage thriller series with Nomad featuring a British desk jockey intelligence operative turned active agent. 

Marc Dane is a MI6 field agent at home behind a computer screen, one step away from the action. But when a brutal attack on his team leaves Dane the only survivor - and with the shocking knowledge that there are traitors inside MI6 - he's forced into the front line.   

Matters spiral out of control when the evidence points toward Dane as the perpetrator of the attack. Accused of betraying his country, he must race against time to clear his name. With nowhere to turn to for help and no one left to trust, Marc is forced to rely on the elusive Rubicon group and their operative Lucy Keyes. Ex US Army, Lucy also knows what it's like to be an outsider, and she's got the skills that Dane needs.   

A terrorist attack is coming, one bigger and more deadly than has ever been seen before. With the eyes of the security establishment elsewhere, only Keyes and Dane can stop the attack before it's too late.

What an Exciting Ride!

I have never read anything by this author and didn't have high expectations for this book. It was something to read while I waited on the newest release by one of my favorite authors. In fact, I typically find books that have the protagonist as a support team member forced into a primary asset role to be grinding as the character makes "rookie" mistakes and obsessively re-examines their motives. I was pleasantly satisfied this story did not fall into that cliche. The protagonist was effective, competent and experienced honest, not overdone, reflections on his pursuit of vengeance. I look forward to the next book by this author and recommend this one.

Reminds me of early Mitch or Scot

Can’t wait for a follow up. The main character is a man like so many others who rises to a challenge when everything he knows changes in the blink of eye. Through a deep well of know how, luck and just good ole fashion perseverance this turns into a tightly wound thriller that had me wanting to think about nothing else. Only my knowledge that it couldn’t last forever caused me to pace myself...still it lasted only 4 days. I would listen to nomad’s follow up without hesitation.
I loved the Heavy British influence and the narration was excellent - neither the bad guys or the good guys sounded out of context.

worst MI6 agent in history

This is the story of the dumbest MI6 agent in history. every single mistake that he could make, he did. he even came up with a few I didn't expect. doubt I'll read any more about Mark

Liked the action and plot twists

One agent surviving the death of his whole squad, betrayed and hunted while trying to find out who killed his workmates and wants him dead as well. Cudos on the plot and story telling
